In their bio, Emberville describe themselves as, “Three dudes who put down the eyeliner and picked up some Yeezys.” That’s them trying to explain how they took a sharp right turn around three years ago and stopped playing hard rock, stopped gigging and went away to dream it up all over again.
They’re an enigma, this lot, but there’s a lot to like in their willingness to go against their own grain and reach for the top when it comes to potential collaboration partners. Definitely, definitely worth checking out and, if they ever emerge from their production bunker, you should go see what these boys becoming EDM men look like without eyeliner.
“We’ve been playing music together for about six or seven years, said Danny BLK, responsible for ‘Sexy Vocals’ according to the band’s Facebook page. “We took a break for about three years and we’ve just been writing together and doing stuff behind the scenes. We used to do rock, hard rock, post hard-core music, but we kind of grew out of it, I guess. We didn’t really want to play that kind of music anymore, so we switched it up. We decided we’re not going to play music we don’t want to play any more.”
So, if they don't want to play hard rock anymore, that begs the obvious question, what does the band want to do now?
Turns out it’s EDM, of a sort. “We love to listen to hip hop music, two of us took up deejaying and producing. We just partook in different types of music. The whole EDM/dance genre was a whole different world for us that we didn’t explore before. With EDM, there’s a lot more you can do with it. You can be a lot more experimental. That’s what attracted us.
“We decided to get ourselves out there to a new audience. In a way, we’re like starting from day one again.”The band are still working on recording and producing. And collaborating. They’re currently working on a cover of Yungblud’s ‘Eleven Minutes, “because it fits between the rock and EDM/pop worlds. And we’re talking to some dance producers looking to get some of our songs remixed. And we want to collaborate as much as possible. We trying to pop out as much music as possible.
“Our dream collaboration would be Skrillex. Everything he puts out is amazing. If I was going to go to the top, I’d go to Skrillex.
“We’re looking to produce a song a month for the rest of this year. But don’t hold us to that.”
Just in case you’re technologically challenged and can’t find Embervlle’s Facebook page, the other two members of the band are Stevie Rain, responsible for ‘Fast Vocals’ and Azz, who has cornered the band’s market on ‘Good Looks’. They’re an enigma, this lot, but there’s a lot to like in their willingness to go against their own grain and reach for the top when it comes to potential collaboration partners. Definitely, definitely worth checking out and, if they ever emerge from their production bunker, you should go see what these boys becoming EDM men look like without eyeliner.
